podgląd

Sliding doors (a slider) with the duoPort SK-S fittings is a version which is handled manually and allows to create all popular types of sliding constructions. The fitting is universal and the use overlays on profiles is not required. The sash is pulled out manually and closing follows also by inserting the sash into the frame and locking it after turning the handle.

DuoPort SK cooperates with the system of tilt and turn fittings called activPilot. From this system the frame clips, which are the same for all weight versions, are derived. The window manufacturer can change the standard of a fitting if the customer wishes so. It can for instance increase the level of anti-theft protection without the necessity of ordering special elements.

The newest Winkhaus fitting makes it possible to fit tilt and slide sashes with height of up to 2500mm and the weight of up to 200 kg. The new construction of trolleys provides a smooth and noiseless sliding of a sash.

Glazing reaching from floor to ceiling is a smart, modern solution which is getting more and more popular. So large windows let plenty of light into the interior and provide a beautiful view, causing that spaces start "to breathe". The question is what to do to make them more functional? Our suggestion would be a new duoPort SK fitting.

The DuoPort SK tilt and slide fittings is the newest product of this type made by Winkhaus and it is based on the activPilot system. This allows to construct tilt and slide sashes with the height of a sliding sash of up to 2.5 m and the width of up to 1.3 m (the sash) or the width of up to 1.5 m by using the extended sashes weighting even up to 200kg! The fitting is characterized by the largest opening of a sash (125 mm) among other tilt and slide systems available on the market, and it can be applied to profiles consisting of many chambers with high level of thermo-insulation. It is an important point in case of large glazing surfaces where the energy losses may be significant.

The duoPort SK-S fitting is a version which is handled manually and allows to create all popular types of sliding constructions. The fitting is universal and using overlays on profiles is not required. The sash is pulled out manually and closing follows also by inserting the sash into the frame and locking it after turning the handle.

A USER’S SAFETY AND COMFORT

In case of such huge, heavy constructions safety is a crucial question. The trolleys are furnished with a protection in a case of overload. The lock of wrong operation makes it impossible to put the sash out of the frame by a careless user. Stability and reliability of the operating system are also increased by modified connection between handle and fitting and a new articulated mechanism of an air latch. The fitting in the basic version is equipped with solid locking pins. The level of the anti-theft protection is regulated by replacing of a given number of standard clips for anti-burglary clips. The duoPort SK 160 Z version fulfils the requirements of the DIN V ENV 1627-1630 standard in a 2 resistance class.

The unique feature of the duoPort SK fitting is its smoothness of functioning. The diameter of the trolley rolls was increased by 20 percent in comparison with the solutions applied so far. Such a construction change improves the comfort of using the sliding doors as the sashes are moved with ease and noiseless. For sashes weighing over 160 kg firm double trolleys are used in a one-piece main body, which ensure the sliding comfort even of very heavy doors.

ADVANTAGES FOR A MANUFACTURER AND AN ASSEMBLER

The duoPort SK fitting is designed in a way which guarantees a maximum of convenience during the process of window production and their assembly. In all weight versions the fitting requires only a 35 mm wide assembly strip. Such parameters of fitting allow to produce tilt and slide sashes from standard window profiles. Using the same sets of guides in all weight versions makes considerable logistic savings. The operation of joining a sash and a frame together is easier and it is very easy to check if the sash is locked correctly in the frame, thanks to the possibility of a visual control. Adjustments are easy too as they are carried out exclusively with one tool. What is more, the re-adjusted sashed are secured with a fixing clip.

Even large tilt and slid sashes do not take a lot of space in a flat, in contrast to the traditional windows which open inwards. These windows are beautiful and functional. We propose duoPort SK for those who look for light, space and comfort!
